Helllloooo & Happy Friday to ya!! I'm sooo excited for my trip that I can hardly stand myself, hee hee! I definitely need a break and some serious "girl time"--YKWIM--what better way to celebrate my birthday! Nothing better than hanging out with your girlfriends and chilling out--maybe win a few bucks too, LOL! I am allowing myself to bet $100 and that's it--I'm not much of a gambler cuz' I don't like to lose money, it's too precious to me :o) I've got a round up of projects for ya today & tomorrow...
My first project is for Whiff of Joy's Project of the Month for May--we were to create gift packaging/wrapping for a flower gift. I changed it up a bit and created a small tote/basket for these cute lil' pots which are "Grow Kits"--they come w/ all the ingredients to grow a small flower or herb ($1 spot at Target)! I used this cutie pie 'Cute Snail' from WOJ designed by Elisabeth Bell and paired it with Black Market Paper Society dp (Imported Rhythm)--such bright spring-y colors. A perfect gift set for Mother's Day or someone's birthday! (This set is for sale in my Etsy shop if you're interested)
I made the matching card with my circle nesatabilities and added some fun Primas with Doodlebug brads in the centers. And of course the snail gal got some bling with diamond stickles!
Here is what the lil' pots look like and are available at Target!
I created a fun little tote for my pots using cardstock & my handy-dandy "Scor-Pal & Scor-Tape"!! The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy also! I added some Primas to the top of the pots to dress them up a bit too! I really like how this one turned out, whadda 'bout you?
Second project today is for the Copic Creations Challenge Blog--this time we were to use lavenders/purples/lilac Copics on our projects. I used this fantastically cute stamp from Stampavie called "Giving Shelter" by Rachelle Anne Miller. And no, I didn't plan to have 2 "snail" projects for ya today--it just happened, LOL! The lovely dp is by Cloud 9 Designs and I heat-curled this awesome sheer ribbon from Offray and topped it with a new Prima hydrangea flower! The sentiment is from PTI's "Mixed Messages" with some lilac rhinestones underneath.
Now make sure and check out the rest of my Whiff of Joy DT's Projects--they should all be up on the store site this weekend and they are bee-u-tiful!
The Copic Creations DT has lots of lilac lovely projects today too, so head on over there to see & join in on the challenge!!
I will be pre-posting projects tomorrow & Monday for ya! Tomorrow I will have some new H&M Stamps projects & the Magnolia-licious May sketch card for ya too!! I will be home on Tuesday evening & hope to be blogging again on Thursday! Don't miss me, hee hee!
